Movies overseen by Oda himself
I have read somewhere he also designed characters for other films but.. that is probably all there is to it.
Anyways, here is the link to those two movies:
BIG NEWS! It has been announced that Oda will be involved with the production of the new movie - One Piece Film Gold! Are you hyped
The movie is supposed to come out July this year 2016 already... it is quite hard to believe it though. Considering all the possible breaks and such, also subs and availability out of Japan... I think we will be able to see it at the beginning of 2017.
Nevermind that! It is the 13th movie in the serie and there have been some sneak peeks! From what I gathered, the story will take place on a big ship ... and the main villains (I guess?) all have star as some kind of their symbol.
The most important thing though is that Oda is going to write a script of the film himself (main poster from chapter 817)!
Well, that is all and good, but Oda also better include some nice ZoNa moments xD because it has been quite a long time...
One Piece Film: Strong World
BRIEF STORY (contains spoilers):
The story takes place right after Brook joins the crew (making it his first film debut) and before Luffy goes to rescue Ace. The crew encounters a pirate named Shiki who had known Roger, the late Pirate King. When Nami warns Shiki about the upcoming storm, he is amazed by her skills and shows great interest in her. He manifests his devil fruit abilities for the crew to see; in the process, he manages to kidnap Nami and the rest of the crew is blown to the islands Shiki rules over with his power. Eventually, Shiki reveals his plans to Nami about destroying East Blue and he needs her navigating skills for it. Nami later escapes from him and reunites with Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Chopper and Usopp. Meanwhile, Franky, Robin and Brook were able to get some information about Shiki's plan and they try to reach the rest of their friends.
Before all of them could get back together, Shiki was able to track Nami down and he defeats her friends she had been reunited with. In the end, she has no other choice but to go with him. Nami doesn't give up and later tries to defeat him herself. She doesn't succeed and instead, she is trapped under many iron bars and gets infected by a virus. When the rest of the crew finally wakes up, they meet Franky, Robin and Brook and together, they storm in Shiki's castle to commence a battle with him and save Nami...
One Piece Film Z
BRIEF STORY (contains spoilers):
Film Z takes place after the timeskip with Brook as the last joined member. The story is about Z, an ex-marine who wants to destroy the whole world. When he is heavily injured in a battle with marines, he is found by the Strawhat pirates and they rescue him. However, Z soon realizes who they are (pirates) and starts a battle on Thousand Sunny. Z's crewmembers soon come to pick him up and when they see Z engaged in the battle, they join him. As a result, Nami, Robin, Chopper and Brook are involuntarily turned 12 years younger. The one who had to deal with these inconveniences the most is Nami. The crew was able to escape thanks to Sunny's Coup de Burst. They land on an island and they start gathering some information about Z and his deal overall. The pirates meet Aokiji there and he provides some useful information to them. In the end, the crew sets out to find Z on the last island...

Remember when lil' Nami was counting money? She was sitting w Chopper! Of all members, Zoro was sitting w them XD Until Sanji went into *butterfly mode*, your very gif still shows NaCho standing on one side of the brick wall with Zoro sitting on the other ❤️ Sounds like I'm grabbing at straws but it's quite cute, hint or not.

Hahah, well, that sure is an interesting idea xD though isn't chopper way too small to be on the same wall as them? Or maybe it's just graphics that makes it look that way.

Not really a hint from Z but I like how Zoro was the only one sitting on the brick wall along w Nami & Chopper >.< wifey & kiddo, pretty much? :))))>

Hehe thanks ^^ oh, really? Zoro was aiming for dr. Indigo before already? It's possible, because I skipped some parts xD okay, I will look at it later and edit it if needed.
Still, Zoro found someone who had an important medicine for Nami's recovery.... and it's a wonder he didn't get lost while following him then ^^
Yep, I thought the same! He didn't see any problem whether she was in chibi form or not, he treated her all the same (and didn't have such pervert thoughts lol xD)
Well, if we also count non.canon moments, then... I can come up with 4 only xD and two of them are canon (although the other one is a hint...but still!)
Hm, I didn't think about that elemental connection, but it sounds interesting ^^
Gotta go edit these things then xD thanks for pointing these out ^^

P.S. I like how Nami used Gust Sword on Ain, and Zoro used Water Stream to finish her off; both are elemental moves that sort of reflect the other don't they? A immaterial sword and an attack name that reminds me of a river or perhaps a rain shower? Nami's name of course means 'wave' so the watery attack name is a more subtle yet potentially viable hint to me ;3

Yay!!! You did movie moments AND gifs! This was a lot of fun to read and just made me all happy inside to recall all of these ZoNa moments in one go! <3 i especially enjoyed your oerspective on strong world zoro, as there was soemthing you pointed out that made me see something new - that eternal pose to nami comment was amazing <3
correct me if i am wrong, though, but i believe zoro had been fending off dr. indigo since they finished shooting up the place. when luffy was chasing shiki deeper into the castle, dr. indigo tried to attack him and zoro fended him off. he had already been engaged in a fight with the only man with nami's antidote, which is why i thought he found him in the lab...it just so happened that his chosen partner/victim was the most useful to nami's recovery! xd but that works for us, as zona fans~
movie z had firmer zona moments, for suuure (probably because he spoke more?) and i loved hiw natural he was around her in chibi nami form. zoro is so good with kids, and females - he treats everyone like they are capable people no matter who they are. nami's appearence - whether it be a child for, or her essense in franky's body - has never deterred zoro from treating her as nami and showing her the same (rocky) respect he always does. in a reaaally strange way, it's romantic~ xd
and yes, her hand on the wadou yet again is such a great hint <3 i wonder just how many times she has come in contact with his swords over the course of entiiire series? off top my head, count at least five...yay! <3
thank you for doing these awesome recaps with handy dandy gifs! i really enjoyed seeing these highlights!>
